The way rappers string their words together with such flow and fluidity is a great art form. And for the fans who adore their work, their rhymes have become a source of inspiration.

While some loyal supporters are inspired to become lyricists themselves, others show their devotion by putting paint or charcoal to paper. From Kanye West and Jay Z to Biggie and Tupac, fans have immortalized their favorite rappers -- past and present -- in art that not only amazes us but also their muses.
